So I signed on to FB the other morning and was surprised to see that my sister won a $500 target gift card, supported Eminem and liked crippled men playing soccer. Ok- my sister has probably never heard an Eminem song, and while she likes soccer- “liking” a picture about crippled men playing it seemed… oh I dunno… ODD.
I noticed she was on chat so I messaged her:
Ok- so WHOOPS! Clearly my sister should refrain from typing FB messages on her cellphone. But really people- why are we “liking” things so…well… stupid? You know, the posts that say “if you like ice cream like this picture of a sundae” and then it goes out to all of your friends. Well that’s great that you like sundaes, but frankly I don’t need to be reminded. Who doesn't like ice cream now and then?
This morning when I got into work- my boss had a questionable video on her page of a girls big arse. She likes big butts and she cannot lie! I kid I kid. Now, SHE was really hacked. Didn’t catch that one. Oh well!
I know I recently wrote off FB - claiming it was depreciating my life. Well - although I still believe all of that to an extent, these two events make me happy I've scaled my usage back a bit. But in other news, FB has helped me connect with family in Scotland, which is great.
